"Stay Thirsty my Friends"
By how he described it, sounds like condensation in the brake lines. I had the same thing happen on the front brake on a supermoto I had that sat for 8 months. Honestly I didn't remember the last time it had had a brake service either, probably a year before that.esmoojee said:Just out of curiosity, what caused your back wheel to lock?
Brake fluid is hygroscopic meaning it can absorb moisture from the air... in some cases when the brake is hot, this water will travel down to the caliper. When that water hits the hot caliper it flash boils and evaporates quickly creating pressure which can lock up the brakes. Not fun on the front for sure. The lesson here is to service your brakes regularly. This happens more to smaller calipers that are working hard to shave off heat. Modern dual disk, with multiple pistons and heat sinks handle it better than say my stock front dirtbike caliper on a bigger rotor, or the OPs smaller rear brake.
Not sure this is what happened to the OP, but that was my experience... caused me 2 days in the hospital and 8 weeks recovery from a broken collar bone from my helmet crushing into it when I hit the ground. A few broken ribs, 2 fingers and a rowdy concussion. Luckily I was wearing full get or I might not be here today. I completely cracked an Arai helmet from smacking the pavement. It was a rough crash, I actually took almost 3/4 of a year off of riding because of all the physical therapy and my shoulder not being strong enough to comfortably control a bike.
